We have investigated the exciton spin relaxation in InGaAs/AlAsSb quantum wells using time-resolved spin-dependent pump and probe reflectance measurements. The spin relaxation time of 1.46 mm electron-heavy hole excitons at room temperature is obtained to be 27-54 ps for an excitation power of 20-100mW. The carrier density dependence of the exciton spin relaxation time was clearly observed, suggesting that the spin relaxation mechanism is strongly related to the Bir-Aronov-Pikus process at room temperature.
